Common Security Clubs: A Facilitator Training Workshop

January 29, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Common Security Club logoWhat is a Common Security Club? It’s a new way for group leaders and trainers to help people help themselves in these troubled times.

These are challenging times for all of us. The economic meltdown and concerns about the health of the planet have left people isolated, vulnerable and afraid. Common Security Clubs are a way to find connection, information, and avenues to a new kind of security—one based on mutual aid and support. Participants learn about the causes of economic and ecological changes, overcome isolation and strengthen community ties.

  • Who Should Come: People with some experience leading groups. No other expertise needed.
  • The Training: You will learn how to lead our 6-session curriculum designed to promote learning, mutual aid, and social action. The training is simple, participatory, and rewarding.
  • The Trainer: Chuck Collins of the Institute for Policy Studies.

Register here. There is a $15 registration fee to cover materials and lunch but no one turned away due to lack of funds. For More Information contact Sarah Byrnes at 617-477-8630 x 307 or for more information or to inquire about a fee waiver.
